Commerce City, CO (Sports Network) - Edson Buddle picked a fine time to score
his first goal for the Colorado Rapids.
The striker joined the club during the offseason and opened his account in
style, bagging the game-winner in the 86th minute to see Colorado earn a 1-0
victory over Toronto FC at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday.
Scoring chances were at a premium throughout the match, but Buddle gave the
Rapids all three points by capitalizing on some slack defending from Toronto
to fire home a right-footed shot from the center of the penalty area.
The win sees Colorado (3-4-3) improve to 12 points to climb to fifth place in
the Western Conference.
Toronto (1-4-4) is winless in its last seven league matches and remains on
seven points after dropping its second straight regular season contest.
